  • 7 MO being sick after solid food any advice? please!?

    hi all, my son is being sick after every solid food meal, but not his bottles, he has been on solids since being 18 weeks as he is lactose intolerant and there is no second milk so we had to feed him slightly earlier than usual as bottle wasnt satisfying him anymore, he has been taking foods no bother, withthe exception of the episodes of bringing all his solid food up, it usually happens every 4 to 6 weeks he can keep his milk down but the solids he cant, we tried giving him pureed again as we had just recently added lumps, but still sick, he is even being sick off plain mash no marg or milk, which i find weird as there is nothing added to make him sick so its not another allergy, he is crying from hunger and tiredness day and night he wont sleep cos he is not full enough to settle, we have informed drs etc but they just say he is teething all the time (i must add when he was on the bottle he did have episodes where the full bottles would come up) he cant have been teething since being 3 weeks old and still have no teeth can he? these episodes usually last a few days, other than the being sick after the bottles he is his usual self, aside from being tired, he still giggles and plays and is still as attentive, please can anyone advise as drs are just not helping at all

  • labour? soon, now or just hoping lol?

    hi all just a quick question regarding some goings on over the last few days, im currently 37w 4d preg and have been experiencing some pretty nasty goings on when using the loo, basically everything i have ate throughout the day has gone straight through me and been very watery TMI, the last week bowel movements have been looser but not to this extent, i have had tummy cramping on and off for the past few weeks which i was informed was braxton hicks, and last night had some pinky blood a few times when i wiped (again TMI) i went into hosp last night due to right sided abdo pain (which they couldn't decide what it was so sent me home) and after having an internal exam i was informed that my cervix has gone, 2 Dr's and a lot of moving and uncomfortableness for a good 15 Min's of looking, anyways im now getting lower abdo cramps again with stabbing like sensations coming and going, the hosp im going to isnt very friendly if u ring more than once ur whole pregnancy (which has been the case with all hosp roind here as of late) so i dont want to ring if nothing is wrong, any ideas anyone?

  • severe spd during pregnancy... when to....?

    hi all just wondering if may be i could have a little advice from anyone else who has spd during there pregnancy, i had it with my daughter who is now 16 months old and am currently suffering from it again, im now 30 weeks and have had it since week 11 :( im back on crutches, have been from 4 weeks, taking cocodamol every 4 hours, which are not working at all, not even taking the edge of the pain anymore, just wondering if i should be going back to the drs, ive been unable to walk at all the last few days, even stuggling to walk to the toilet, which is 10 steps away from my sofa, i just want to cry all the time cant get comfy, i was induced with my daughter due to the pain, but that was nowhere near as bad as it is now, im actually fonding myself wishing for tht pain to come back and it hurt with her.

    please help me, my dr took ages to prescribe me with anything, in the end i had to ring and demand something to help with the pain, so i cant see them giving anything stronger, which i know they can cos i has stronger with my little girl, even a bath, which my OH has to get me in and out of, doesnt help at all ;(

  • pregnant with implant?

    hi all could do with some advice here:

    well i had a baby beg of dec last year, and opted for the implant, which was terrible, i bled constantly the thing kept itching and it stuck quite far out of my arm, you could see where it was, i was advised off a dr to have it removed for these reasons and the fact tht it was making my raynauds worse. common prob app...

    anyway, about 2 weeks before it came out i stopped bleeding, then 10 days after i had a little pink blood on tissue when i wiped, i had the implant out 4 days later and have since NOT has intercourse, however i started to have preg signs, back ache, headaches, tiredness, sickness, tummy cramps, lack of period, moddy etc so a week after removal i took a test, it was negative, yesterday i took another test and it came back positive, its been 6 weeks tomorrow since the implant was removed i have all preg signs, obv a pos result, but could i have fallen preg with the implant in? the last time i had sex was 4 days before removal, and since then ive been too tired to do anything........ thoughts please?

  • employee on sick but.......?

    hi all hoping someone can help me, my owns a shop, and has had the same person working for him for 4 years, in that time the person has never had any days off sick, only a few for family deaths etc, he has run the shop on his own, albeit a bit crappy (takings have gone down by £100s, over stocking things that dont sell, not stocking things tht do etc) he has basicalyy been left to run the shop and it was up until a few weeks ago going to get closed down, my friend has now hired someone else to take over the management part, and the other person is now only there to sort stock and serve customers, the thing is, the manager that has been took on was upset to hear the guy demanding to know what customers wanted when entering the shop, in an abrupt very nasty way, obv the customers walked out without purchasing anything, the manager had a word with the other member of staff, who promptly went on the sick for migraines (can i just add, some security cameras were installed due to the manager insisting that some shud have been in years ago, and the guy decided to play with them 5 mins after the opening of the shop)

    anyway, this guy has gone on the sick, leaving my friend and his manager running the shop, since this guy has gone takings have gone up, and a lot of customers have advised tht he should not come back due to his attitude, the guy in question was seen the other day, out drinking with his friends, this is after his wife had phoned to say she would be coming to pick up his pay as he was unable to get out of bed due to the headaches. the dr gave him a sick note for 4 weeks, due to the migraines, but surely if he can go out drinking in a loud club he is not sick.

    any advice on what can be done here

  • would you seek further advice on this....34 weeks pregnant?

    hi all. im just over 34 weeks pregnant and have a few signs of pre-eclampsia.

    i saw my midwife last thursday, who done a urine test which showed protein, and white blood cells, the blood cells were plus 2. but i have no infection as urine was sent to lab to test, been having this for a few mnths now.

    anyways, when i visited my midwife i mentioned about some headaches i have been getting, i just cant seem to shift it no matter what i do, i keep seeing spots in front of my eyes, my vision is becoming blurry and i am constantly tired, like rediculously.

    as yet i have no significant swelling, and my blood pressure was normal (but high for me, mine is normally 90/65, its been reading at 125/70 lately)

    my modwife told me to go home and i would see her some time in the next few weeks, thing is i had pre-eclampsia with my son got it at 35 weeks, so im worried i have it again, also my dr at the hospital sed to have my blood pressure checked avery 2 weeks from 20 weeks pregnant, and this has never been done

  • would you find a new community midwife?

    my midwife doesnt seem to care and im wondering if i should see if i can change her, im 17 weeks pregnant and have only seen her for about 10 mins in all, she rang me for half and hour the night befire my first appointment to try and get me to go to a different hospital near us as it was easier for her, i told her there was no way i was going there, when i went for my appointment the next day she tried again to get me to change my mind, again i told her no, so she said she couldnt do my booking forms as she hadnt brought the right ones, then she came to my house a few days later filled her info in and left me to complete the rest (another midwife saw this the other day and commented on the fact that i had written it out not her)

    last week i was supposed to go see her for my first proper appointment, she phoned the day earlier to say she was going on holiday instead, and that being 16 weeks pregnant at the time i had to go and get my bloods took at a nearby hospital from another communtity midwife, when i got there i was told that because i had chosen to go to a diff hospital i couldnt be seen at that one, and my midwife would know this, but she had sent me anyways, so i then had to go to the hospital i had opted for, which is a 45 min drive away from my house, when i got there i got told i didnt need to have the bloods took cos i had already opted out of getting these particular ones done, so id travelled there for nothing.

    i have a friend who is preg and she has stated a few times that when she tries to talk o her about any problems she rushes her out of the room just saying everything will be fine, without explaining what is wong, and she took her bloods to test for low iron 5 weeks ago, my friend keeps ringing her for the results and she tells her she will ring back and never does.

    i had 2 m/c last year and i dont want to be seen by a midwife who doesnt care, everything has me on edge and i need to phone her cos i have been getting nasty pains, but im bothered incase she tells me not to be silly or something, should i get a new midwife????

    sorry for the long post!!
